Hi, Harvey and all,
Thanks for the input. I'm having difficulty in following what seems to
be extremely simple instructions. For example, Harvey: You directed me
I have difficulty even getting to FRETBOARD. I turn on the Z6S and I
have GUITARS, CHORDS, GUITA03,  GUITA04, ... through
GUITA08. No sign of FRETBOARD anywhere. However you've mentioned in
the material [manuals] and elsewhere that EDIT is the start of so many
processes so I press EDIT. And sure enough: I find FRETBOARD on button 5.
So I press FRETBOARD and look for TUNINGS, and it's nowhere to be
seen. However TUNE/TRANS shows on key 5. So I press key 5. Now I see
TUNING on key 3.
I press TUNING and get MAP 1 on button 1; TUNINGS on button 2; PRESETS
on button 3 and EDIT on button 4. So that appears to be the "... button
to the right of
the word 'Preset' and scroll to the 6-stringBass tuning..." that you
mentioned. However I must not be at the right place because I can't
find any 6 string bass tuning. On this screen I can see maps 1 through
map 8 and the notes for every fret from zero [open] through 24 and I
can't find anything resembling BEADGC. Of course only the OPEN, 12 fret
and 24 fret would give this sequence.
So where did I fall off the wagon? Is there some way I can actually
follow " FRETBOARD/TUNINGS/PRESET" that you mention? I have done a
Oh, and I reversed the 6 pin plug where the pad trigger cable connects
to the main board and now the notes play in the right order. However
the high E still doesn't function so I'll be checking that out.
And: Anyone else who would care to take pity upon me is gratefully
welcomed to chime in...
